Dry leaf: alfalfa, straw, hints of dry biscuits, pea shoots or sprouts;
Wet leaf: strong vegetal aroma, fading to a mild fishiness;
Liquor: light yellow straw colour with a faint, honey blossom aroma
Mouthfeel: creamy, thick; lightly astringent, soft lingering hints of white pepper;
Taste: Chestnut, green, snowpeas, sweet, floral, honey;

Opinion: This is a confusingly described tea. It’s a, “golden bud” tea, which sometimes translates as, “yellow tea,” it’s called a, ”white tea,” and it is processed as a, ”green tea.” This really does my head in just thinking about it. Would love to have a more detailed understanding of this particular tea.
